Of Interest

  • Rapeman is named after an adult Japanese comic book. Apparently the main character does what his name suggests he does.
  • Budd is named after R. Budd Dwyer. A former treasurer for Pennylvania, he shot himself in the head during a live, televised press conference. You can find video of it online. I've heard that if you see it, you'll never be able to forget it.
  • There's a song on Two Nuns and a Pack Mule called "Kim Gordon's Panties". It is called that both because the song sounds like a rip-off of a Sonic Youth song and because Kim Gordon had taken off her underwear and thrown it at Albini (or the audience, depending on the source) a few times during concerts.
